Nautor Swan 2023 Racing Season Unveiled

Nautor Swan 2023 Racing Season

Nautor Swan has unveiled a spectacular 2023 ClubSwan Racing season with an exhilarating globetrotting calendar that offers something for everyone across the entire Swan Rating and One Design range.

“ClubSwan Racing emerged from a desire to bring the passion, excitement and camaraderie of racing to the whole Swan family,” said Nautor Group President, Leonardo Ferragamo, “and we believe we have succeeded in that mission. Every year we have aimed to improve the experience for Swan owners and their crews, and I am sure 2023 will deliver more unforgettable memories, incredible adventures and many more shared stories.”

Both the Rating and One Design fleets will have their own dedicated circuits. The season starts in February in the Caribbean with the Swan Maxi Series, which includes seven events contested by Maxi Swans around the globe.

The 2023 season also includes four regional series which will be held in the Mediterranean, Baltic, The Solent and North America. The icing on the ClubSwan Racing cake is The Nations League 2023 which will be contested by the four ClubSwan Racing One Design classes throughout the season.

The One Design action begins with the ClubSwan 36 class returning to Split –after its debut there in 2022 at the season-ending European Championship– for the Swan Croatia Challenge from April 25-29. This will be hosted by ACI Sail and has already attracted 15 entries. The event marks the first of the seven regattas that make up The Nations League.

The following month will see the whole ClubSwan Racing One Design family (over 40 expected entries) gather for the Swan Sardinia Challenge. The Marina di Villasimius of Marinedi Group is the venue once again following its own successful debut last year.

June sees the fourth edition of the highly competitive The Nations Trophy event in Porto Cervo, organised by Yacht Club Costa Smeralda. This is followed by the S&S Swan Rendezvous on Elba Island, organised by the S&S Swan Association and hosted by Marciana Marina. July brings the highlight of the Rating Swan season; the Swan European Regatta in Turku, Finland.

In August, as per tradition, the Swan One Design fleet will race the Copa del Rey MAPFRE, 41st edition, organised by the Real Club Nautico de Palma. In September, the ClubSwan 36 and ClubSwan 50 classes will contest their own European championships, with the former being hosted by Marina di Puntaldia, Italy, and the Menorca ClubSwan 50 Europeans at Club Maritimo Mahon, Spain. Both locations are first-time venues for ClubSwan Racing.

The 2023 season comes to a fitting conclusion in October with all four One Design classes gathering again for the Swan One Design Worlds in Marina di Scarlino, Italy. This finale that will also determine the destination of The Nations League title and the world titles in each fleet.
